PS: This project has sucked a lot of energy, free time and money, my entire classic, NG Amiga and Commodore collection, plus my car (twice!) and a few other items which ended up on ebay during seven years. You probably already know but I'll be making these at a loss for a while but I love it and I hope you're going to love it too. Add sad music here.

Thank you to everyone who’s been supporting this project, you know who you are.

Congratulation on completing your project, done something that even a "multimillion" dollar company said they would struggle to do. Good luck and I hope you get the sales.

Congratulations on the case! Maybe you should write down the whole story about it and sell the rights to Disney, they could make a nice little X-Mass 2013 movie out of it

Really nice! Now we only need the hardware that blows the x out of the case:)

It's good to tell what comes with the box.

Slow Mode Mythbusters on: (Sleeping accepted)
Like here we have a car. It is a vehicle made by a human being to transport peole and the things people may own from the spot A to B.

Surprisingly to a spot B usually where to designated driver presumes but I ,may be wrong. There is a steering wheel. At the floor there are pedals.
The first one makes the car move at there but wait a second. (Waiting for two more weeks?)

Almost forgot. First You must start the engine with A key that is somewhere..

The Engine is made. from...

Got It? Hopefully You get the joke)

Anyways Gonratulations. If there were any Good Amigas now to stuff In. (not these nearly broken or half-way drivers thingies.)

Thanks PR...

Well at the moment you can put this in:

So as we stand the case supports:

the microA1*
the efika*
the mac mini*

Tested

the fpgaarcade Replay
x86 mini-itx and flex-atx boards
SAM440
SAM440 flex
SAM460

*not tested yet

But I suppose that your comment eliminates some of those boards...

Thats awesome man! Congratulation, glad you stuck it out. Very professional product you put out there. This case is better than most off the shelf pc cases by far. Only the boutique cases like Lian Li, Coolermaster, and others give it a run!

Congratulations for this wonderful project!

I would be interested if the DVD could be in SLOT-IN factor. Would that be posible?

Thanks anyway and cheers!

This smacks of quality!
